6:36 am
barricaded himself in had an argument with his roommate over money we are told and shot him. this is video and if we look at some video we watched officers throw in a lot of flash bangs. obviously the suspect didn't bulging because he was not in there. police do believe he is armed and that's why they zeroed in on him and they were on the bull horn asking him to come out and this sort of thing actually happens a lot and one man told us his young you to thers are afraid to go outside. >> there is no way he need to come on out. >> reporter: now this all began

6:39 am
53 oakland, 50s on the peninsular, 50s on the coast and i have seen 47 at ocean beach and 46 pacifica and it is all over the place on some of these temperatures. if you get an east or north wind it is on the keeler side, so that is going to be the forecast and we have still not taken the turnaround but it is south of that and boy, it is way down here. it is snowing throughout much of the midwest and it is 19 in denver and snowing and 18 at the air force academy, record snow fall for the month and rapid city south dakota and i know it is crazy, dave, 39 up in tahoe and we had some

6:46 am
veteran officers having several years or more and here is one man's opinion on that. >> the veteran officers, you know they have probably seen a lot and you know, i can understand they might be fed up with certain things due to being on the job and certain stresses, it is not police work by any means and they need to bring more than they have. they need to have a policy reinstated where they document the race and ethnicity of everyone searched at traffic stops. coming up on mornings on 2 we will tell you about the biggest complaint on veteran officers, janine de la vega ktvu channel 2 morning news. in just about an hour from now a ritual begins and as brian flores explains, it

6:50 am
mt. diablo gusting to 68 miles per hour and it is a huge difference in some of these temperatures, some are cool and warm and some are cold so if you get a south wind or west wind, it will be a cooler day but it has been a long time since i have seen some of these locations. the fog is there and it is not making much of an impact unless you are right by the waters' edge. while we have record heat, it is back in the dakotas and the air force academy is just amazing for april. we'll see windy and warm for inland and we have a 30 degrees difference which would not surprise me in the least. 60s to near 90s and i had a report in clear lake which said the winds have stopped.
